Water Colour Painting

This one more of my old craft work something I painted in 1999. 

I submitted this water colour painting of an Indian Potter in international school painting competition. The competition is held in all secondary schools across commonwealth countries. ChitralilaNiketan Kala Mahavidhyalaya coordinates all the paintings from our state which are scrutinised and sent to various countries for display I did not win any prizes but my painting was sent to London for display for a year.

The aim of the painting competition was for students to paint a picture inspired by their everyday life and surroundings. I did my school from small town in India, so there was a small potter family living near my school. The family's daily routine revolved around their small pottery business. So I was inspired to share this scene , knowing that if the painting goes to other country then I would be sharing a unique experience with them.

Do let me know your views about it. Its been ages I haven't done any water colour painting.... should give it a try again.
